Fernadina & Isabela Islands

Feb 19, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Today our guest explored the westernmost realm of the Galapagos. During the morning, the entire guest landed and snorkel at Punta Espinosa, Fernandina Island. The highlights of the morning were the countless Galapagos marine iguanas that were basking at the shoreline as our guest explored the island. As well in the morning while snorkeling our guest observe many Green sea turtles feeding on sea weed over there rocks.  For the afternoon, everybody went on panga rides to experience Punta Vicente Roca, Isabela Island.  This site offers an impressive view of a collapsed volcano. As well, the rocky cliffs provide shelter for Galapagos fur seals and are a good perch for seabirds like Nazca boobies, flightless cormorants and Galapagos penguins.
